Surya class Mobile Station

The Southern Bloc maintains a unique superset of ship-station hybrid classes, the most common of which is the Surya Class Mobile Station.

Utilizing a heavily modified Eshu Class Dreadnought central structure, albeit gutted and completely rebuilt on the inside, the Surya Class mobile stations have less mobility than a dreadnought, but far more than any conventional station.

The Surya Class, in particular, is more than capable of transiting the cold void of space between the planets, and seven were commissioned as of 2472, of which three are actually complete:

Orissa (currently stationed around Io)
Modhera (currently stationed around Eunomia)
Arasavalli (currently stationed around Titan)
Kasheli (under construction)
Assam (under construction)
Rajasthan (under construction)
Jaipur (modules being assembled)

The most notable feature of the Surya Class is its six rotating habitat rings, enabling redundancy and allowing for easier diplomatic interchanges, since it can maintain multiple gravity standards simultaneously including Earth-standard, Europan-standard, and various other options, in addition to certain variable gravity research labs.

The Surya Class is deliberately intended for remote, largely peaceful long-term service. As such, it is designed to support diplomatic, administrative, routine naval patrol capabilities, listening post functionality, and supportive research functions.

Unlike the Ganapati Class Mobile Station, the Surya Class does not support docking capabilities for destroyer pickets, but relies on extension tethers to enable resupply of any destroyer pickets supporting each individual mobile station.

Military capabilities are modest, with only a single quad-battery of HED lances and four wings of combat drones.
